Vegas Comedy and Concerts: What's New in 2020

Category General

From Jerry Seinfeld to Shania Twain, there’s a lot to look forward to

The beginning of the new decade is shaping up to a pivotal year for Vegas comedy shows and concerts. It's barely March and already some big changes have been underway to the show lineup on the Strip. Two headliner vocal powerhouses are taking their final bows – Both Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera are wrapping up their Vegas residences – and Cirque du Soleil's R.U.N has announced it's final performance will be on March 8. But as Las Vegas has proven time and time again, if one show, hotel or restaurant closes, another bigger, glitzy-er one is always waiting to take its place. This city is certainly no stranger to change. And if the comedians and singers listed below are any indication, that might not actually be a bad thing.

Jerry Seinfeld
Jerry Seinfeld will be bringing his quirky observational humor to the Coliseum at Caesars Palace for a few select dates in April and May. While some may only know him from the hit ‘90s sitcom Seinfeld, the Emmy Award-winner has been a legendary force on the standup scene for more than 30 years. In fact, he ranked 12th on Comedy Central's list of the Top 100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time. 

Ray Romano and David Spade
Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond) and Saturday Night Live comedian David Spade (Tommy Boy, Black Sheep, and Joe Dirt) may seem like an unlikely pairing, but Romano's dry humor and Spade's sarcastic wit work surprisingly well together. The duo will be entertaining audiences with their hilarious banter at The Mirage for two weekends this October and December. 

RuPaul’s Drag Race LIVE
After the long-running and beloved show Donny and Marie closed last November, the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas had a big void to fill. And in perhaps a surprising move, they chose the world's most famous drag queen, RuPaul, to step in and fill Marie's (sequined Stiletto) shoes. And that was when RuPaul's Drag Race LIVE was born. The show is based on the Emmy Award-winning reality tv show by the same name and features original music and a rotating cast of fan favorites from previous seasons of the show. The Las Vegas Sun praises the show for its "beautiful energy" and "joyous celebration of individuality." 

Shania Twain
Las Vegas has seen its share of impressive headliners over the last few years and if you think Shania Twain might struggle to compete, think again. The five Grammy-winner didn't become the world's best-selling female country vocalist by accident – she's a charismatic performer who never holds back. Her show features ‘90s pop hits “That Don’t Impress Me Much," “Man! I Feel Like a Woman," and “Still The One,” but the music really comes alive thanks to the live orchestra and the showroom’s high definition LED walls. Catch Shania Twain at the Zappos Theatre at Planet Hollywood throughout March and April.

Manilow Las Vegas
Barry is back! The Grammy, Tony and Emmy-Award-winning singer is now performing at the Westgate Resort and Casino. Expect to hear "Mandy," "New York City Rhythm," and "Copacabana," as well as many of his other hits (he's had an astounding 50 songs on the Top-40 list). Las Vegas Weekly called Barry Manilow the "Best Strip Headliner."
